metro detectives previously obtained this grainy image , footage from a security camera at a fast food restaurant, recorded in 2004. the driver bought some food for a deaf woman he'd picked up, then drove her to kyle canyon road and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint. last october, cold case detectives dean o'kelley and ken hefner said they were hopeful the attacker might still be in town. ken hefner/cold case detective: might be able to look at it and say, hey, that's so and so, and we can got from there. ((george knapp)) the reason these homicide veterans were working a rape case is that the dna from this sexual assault was a match for a sample taken from a murder scene six years earlier. the bludgeoned body of a woman was found in 1998 under a joshua tree off state route 159 near oliver ranch.. there were signs of a violent struggle.

miller, who'd often been homeless. dna evidence from the murder scene was entered into the "codis" data base, but it wasn't until 2012 that the connection was made to the 2004 sexual assault case. dean o'kelley/cold case detective: they are definitely linked. the same male deposited semen in both locations. no question about that. ((george knapp)) but detectives still didn't have a name. they do now. back in may, this man brandon mcguire was arrested for a domestic violence incident. his dna was cole the time. metro just learned that it matched the profile from the earlier crimes. mcguire was aprpehended wednesday morning. he is being held on sexual assault and kidnapping charges. a murder case will take longer to put together but cold case detectives are already working on it. the sexual assault team, meanwhile, thinks mcguire may have other victims out there. lt. david valenta/metro sexual assault: with continued testing we may have additional that's still linked to the same suspect. not to mention we will just have additional cases, completely
5:03 pm
additional success stories we anticipate in the future. ((george knapp)) the cold case detectives who worked the murder case say brandon mcguire is someone they've had on their radar screen for awhile, and not necessarily for the 1998 homicide by itself. you can read into that what you will. as we reported last year, advanced in dna testing means that ther sexual assault team expects to make additional arrests of rape suspects who t it. ((dave courvoisier)) following yesterday's senate vote to pass sb1.. or the stadium bill... to the assembly... the legislator broke for the jewish holiday yom kippur. and while that puts the special session on hold until tomorrow... the buzz about the stadium is going on all around nevada---for and against the idea. we start our team coverage in carson city with mauricio marin.

"i am as confident as anyone can be i don't want to use too many sports analogies because it's half time we got one more half to go we got to get to the assembly but if they do the work the senate did i think they'll see the economic benefits of this are outstanding and i feel we can get the votes." chris the assembly approving 750 million hotel taxes is all the stands in the way raider nation relocation andy abboud sands "one more vote before we go to the nfl." chris

5:16 pm
years. ((michelle mortensen)) maybe 70 really is the new 60. more americans are living longer. which means more people are working longer. but are we saving enough to enjoy our golden years? apparently -- some employees need a little help from their bosses. according to a new report from asset management firm -- t-rowe price -- more companies arek employees to save more for retirement. let's look at the numbers. last year -- a little more than half of the employers in the report automatically enrolled workers into a retirement savings plan -- like a 401 (k). 30 percent automatically contributed 6 percent or more of the workers salary to the savings plan. which -- according to the report -- is a big deal. here's why. if automatically enrolled -- 88 percent of workers participate in the plan. when employees have to sign
5:17 pm
than half participate. but putting away 6 percent still might not be enough. t-rowe price recommends saving 15 percent or more of your salary towards retirement. if you can't do that all at once -- start saving gradually. like adding two percent each year. little by little -- you can get a nest egg -- that may keep you comfortable. and for more help with managing your financial future ... make an appointment with our debt destroyer partner the financial guidance center. appointments are free ... but they can save you more than you ever imagined. i'm michelle mortensen.///
